SummaryThis project seeks to raise $3,000 for cement blocks for each of the 18 classrooms, and a total of $315,000 to complete the new facilities for CRICS.
DescriptionChiang Rai International School (CRICS) was created to provide educational opportunities for children of Christian workers who serve in northern Thailand, as well as to bring Christ to local communities. CRICS has moved four times, finally choosing a permanent home in 2011. Since then, the school has grown from 80 to 140 students.
But now highway construction through the property has forced demolition of four of the five buildings, and by the summer of 2016 the school will have to move into new facilities. The gap between the government’s compensation and the cost of the rebuilding project is $315,000.
This project will be managed by the CRICS Working Committee under the Christian Education Foundation of Thailand, which includes Missionaries Chuck and Ruth Fox, Global Workers Scott and Aphiwan Coats and Development Workers Joel Hoefle and Patricia Magal.
It is anticipated that the construction will take up to three years to complete.
Suggested Gifts$50 purchases one meter of fencing
$250 buys materials for one meter of sound barrier between rooms.
Prayer RequestsPray with all those involved with CRICS that classes will be able to begin on schedule and in the new facilities, even while they are under construction.
